Keyword: cream cheese


  • Deli sliced ham or other meats of your choice
  • Cheese slices I used white and yellow american
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp dill weed
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder


  • In a medium sized bowl, combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, dill weed, garlic powder, and onion powder. Mix until blended well.
  • Spread a thin layer of cream cheese mixture on your tortilla. Spread it out well so that the whole tortilla has a thin layer.
  • Down the middle of the tortilla, place a few slices of deli ham to cover the width of the tortilla. On top of the ham, place a layer of cheese to cover the width of the tortilla. This ensures that each pinwheel has meat and cheese.
  • Roll up the tortilla tightly. Cut off a small portion of each end and discard, then cut the remaining rolled tortilla into 6-8 slices, about 1 inch thick. Repeat with remaining ingredients.


I didn't specify amounts of meats or cheeses because it all depends on your taste. I used one layer of meat and two different cheeses, but if you like more meat, you can add more. It all depends on what you like your meat-to-cheese ratio to be.
